K.PriebePoisonous spiders, rattlesnakes and sharks will probably send a chill throughout your body and most likely you will be very frightened for you life. Have you ever thought about creepy plants that grow? Nature’s nightmares go beyond spiders, snakes and sharks. recently put together a list of 10 creepy plants that shouldn't exist. Here are a few of my favorites! 

Doll’s Eye: This plant literally looks like dolls’ eyes and it’s not pleasant looking. Also referred to as “white baneberry,” this plant is highly poisonous.

Devil’s Claw: This plant (Proboscidea parviflora) looks like small thistle burs that get stuck on your clothes as you walk through a field, but don’t be mistaken. Its natural defense causes it to attach itself to the feet of passerbys. Devil's claw is large and grows in Arizona. Read more about another odd-looking plant by the name of devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens), which grows wild in Africa, and learn how it combats joint pain.
